Penrith Property Market Update 2nd Half of 2020

In Q3 2020, Penrith recorded a median house price of $690,000, and a median unit price of $481,500. This represents annual (Q3 2019 – Q3 2020) median price growth of 4.6% for houses of 1.4% for units. Between Q3 2019 – Q3 2020 total sales in both markets slowed, by -10.6% for houses (to 530 sales) and by -24.8% for units (to 218 sales). Lower demand may be a reflection of COVID-19 restrictions, however positive price growth suggests a potential undersupply in the market. With median prices up and currently limited competing stock, now is an ideal to sell your home in Penrith.
